Question: What is the TRUE definition of a Gaited Horse?
If you could please answer this for me it would be greatly

From Panelist Lee

 IMO, a gaited horse is any horse that in addition or in place of a trot as
an intermediate gait between walk and canter, also performs one or more of
the following:  a stepping pace(aka sobreandando), a saddle rack (aka corto,
largo, Rocky Mountain gait, "singlefoot", slow tolt), a true rack(fast tolt)
, a fox trot, or a running walk(aka paso llano).  His papers are irrelevant.
